Wonderful guest house - very warm welcome, extremely organised. The room was perfect for a one night stay before an early start at Gatwick. My taxi was booked for me and arrived early. I was even able to have some breakfast before I left at 5.45, which was great - nowhere else I looked at offered this. Definitely recommend &... More

Southbourne is the most wonderful guest house. Breda and Tony redefine warmth, concern for guests, and professionalism. Not a thing was missing or out of place. Little touches -- wildflowers on the night table -- speak to a love of what they are doing. This was my second stay here, and it is much more enjoyable than staying in London... More

We chose the Southbourne as the guest house is able to accommodate 2 x families of 5 as well as being so close to Gatwick Airport. The accommodation is spotless & very comfortable, booking very easy, professional & friendly hosts & excellent value for money. I would definitely recommend & certainly stay again.

the hosts have considered every detail from the lay out of the room and breakfast to the crisp cotton sheets on the bed. I had a lovely single room - no road noise or noise from elsewhere. I slept very well. The en suite was spotless and ideal and a taxi was booked and arrived. Tony was very hospitable and... More

Having stayed in many of the very very average airport hotels around the area, we decided this time that we we not going to pay the extortionate rates at these places, plus the £30 they charge for car parking for the night. We had a very early flight to Canada next morning, so checked in at the southbourne this time...... More

Stayed just for one night due to early morning flight. Very clean room and very quiet location yet very close to Horley town. Early continental breakfast offered a very wide choice. We would most certainly use it again.

Shower was perfect too !! the guesthouse itself got an added beauty when I arrived since it was... More

An excellent Bed & Breakfast ideally situated for Gatwick airport. The room was very clean and comfortable with a good shower room. The breakfast was very good, as was the service. I would be pleased to stay again.
